Ripped from Reality HD

By Appnotix

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Ripped from Reality captures and expels you into a surreal world of juxtapositions. Combining the world of photography, the world of sketching, the uniqueness within every wrinkle of paper, and most importantly the exploration into your own imagination.

Photography has given us the opportunity to capture images in life. We are able to experience the reality of a rare moment or the permanence in a location that photography allows us to never forget. Being able to recreate these memories through another medium can make it even more personal.
Imagine combining the two?

Become Ripped from Reality and into a different world that is in your control. Rule over your photograph with a sketch, or create an environment with this product that can be a journey back or step forward in time. With your sketch overlaying your photograph the artist inside you can move into another direction. Use it as a way of an imaginative approach to contrasting real life with the collage of graphite.

When creating your sketch you can go from controlled small pencil lines to a range of eye catching bold ones. As an artist your paper is a big deal. Remove and add more of a deckled edged rip with just the use of your fingertip. The accuracy of your sketch is up to you, you are the artist after all. Create a pencil color to invent a sense of nostalgia or move into a different aesthetic of modern draftsmanship. With Ripped from Reality you have a clear journey through art following digital imaging into a classical era of art. To your viewer you are creating a combination that will give a clear statement of the modern age we are all apart of.

Appnotix is making its way into the modern times of art, using Ripped from Reality as a starting point in their timeline.

Customer Reviews

I really like this app.

Unlike the other person, I see a lot of potential for this app. I think it is pretty cool as is but I could see some additions that would make it really great. First I would like to have pencil options that actually look like you are drawing with a pencil. A range of hardness of leads would be great. This would allow a person to put their own touch on the drawing beneath. Second, I would like to be able to put a different photo under the top photo. Third it would be very cool to start with one photo, pull up another, tear a piece or pieces from it and paste them onto the starting photo, even resizing them to taste. This would allow for a collage effect that would allow for some great creativity. As it is, the interface is spot on, intuitive, fast, slick. I like to use multiple apps on a single photo to get unique results and this app helps me do just that. Please consider my suggestions. I would even pay for them as in app purchases.

Love it but missing one thing

When I saw your app I was so happy that someone made this possible. It simulates paper really well, yet it is missing something that I though you could add to this app or a different one. Make it so that you can rip creative commons images from Flickr and other online galleries, that would make this app a true ripper in the dual sense of the word. Best!

This app is amazing 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Thank you. I use this app creating wonderful pictures for hours like others play a game there are just so many variables. I love it. So very very EASY. Thank you.
